Round 2: The 10 least populated US States [According to the US Census Bureau’s estimated figures for resident populations for 2019.]

Wyoming / Vermont / Alaska / North Dakota / South Dakota / Delaware / Rhode Island / Montana / Maine / New Hampshire

Round 3: The 10 four-letter words made from the word ‘dribble’ [The four-letter words are all in Chambers 21st century dictionary on chambers.co.uk; they have their own entry; does not include hyphenated words, words with apostrophes, acronyms or any word that the dictionary spells with an initial capital letter; one of these words is an abbreviation of a longer word; as of 16 January 2021.]

Bide / Bier / Bile / Bird / Deli / Dire / Idle / Lied / Ride / Rile

Once again we have the oddity of common English words that do not have their own entry in the dictionary – “Bled” and “Bred” were not in this list, and “Lied” (pronounced “leed”) was here as a “German song for solo voice, popular during the Romantic period”. and not as the past tense of “Lie”.

Gareth Southgate / Roy Hodgson / Fabio Capello / Sven-Goran Eriksson / Kevin Keegan / Glenn Hoddle / Terry Venables / Graham Taylor / Bobby Robson / Ron Greenwood

For the record

The Final Round question here is an updated version of the Final Round question from the very first episode of “Tenable”(S1Ep1), namely:

Final Round: Cars: The 10 best-selling car brands by new cars registered [Based on the number of new UK registrations in 2015, according to figures published by the SMMT.]  

Ford / Vauxhall / Volkswagen / BMW / Audi / Nissan / Mercedes-Benz / Peugeot / Toyota / Hyundai 

Peugeot and Hyundai have dropped out of the list since 2015 and been replaced by Kia and Skoda. The other 8 answers are the same, but in a very different order.
